The basketball season saw 14 evenings of concession service, offering pizza, popcorn, snacks and drinks, with four volunteers at each game. The ECS Board of Education thanked everyone who helped make this year a success.
Basketball playoffs begin on Friday, Feb. 22 for the boys’ team, which will be at North Collins at 7 p.m. The girls’ team will face West Valley at 2 p.m., on Saturday, Feb. 23 at ECS.
The Drama Club is raising money by selling program ads to pay for costume rentals, cost for the usage rights for the play “Bye Bye Birdie” (to be held March 23), and food for cast members at dress rehearsals. The Sports Boosters Club agreed to support their efforts.
Twenty-four missing years of ECS yearbooks are needed to research sports championships in order to complete the club’s Add-a-Year” banner project.

The Winter Sports banquet will be held March 11, and the success of the Fall Sports Banquet is something the club wishes to repeat.
